Whether it is the New Year’s resolutions, or just a wish to be a part of the town’s long awaited Welshpool 10k, hundreds have signed up for the event which is set to go ahead third time of asking.

Last night it was confirmed that over 300 people have already signed up for the March 27 event, with organisers revealing that the town’s very own Paralympic hero, James Roberts MBE, will be officially starting the run.

“The entries vary from nervous first-timers of all ages through to competitive runners,” said organiser Alan Lewis, from Adrenaline Sporting Events.

“And we are delighted to confirm that wheelchair rugby star James Roberts MBE will be starting the race just to make it that little bit more special.”

The event has been supported by local firms SJ Roberts and Lowfield Timbers Frames who will not only be headline sponsors, but also have teams running.

Covid-19 has delayed the introduction of the event for the past two years but Mr Lewis said that it is all systems go for March.

The event is schedule to start and finish outside the Town Hall and run through the world-class gardens and grounds of Powis Castle.
